Rebel Edwin!!! E is for Easel Cards

Good morning!,
Yeah it's time for another challenge over at ABC and this time we want to see Easel cards, we are lucky to be sponsored by Secret Crafter so worth a go. I thought it was about time I made a card for the boys so here is the lovely Grafitti Edwin from Magnolia. I also used the Brickwall and Grafitti Happy Birthday to create the scene.

I used black Coredinations and embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder then sanded it to give it a grungey look. The stars and arrows were cut on the Cricut and I added some MS Punched buttons to add some colour. The Easel is held up with a silver metal star brad. I hope you like him, he is definately one of my favourite Edwins.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - Week 74 'Dawny's Sketch'
Tuesday Throwdown - Challenge#19 'Punches'
